Savannah's Paw Tracks

Autobiography of a Former Shelter Cat

Never Let This Happen Again #remembermethursday


The Kid Sage and I are joining paws across the world to bring focus on the urgent need to remember all those companion, adoptable animals who were not fortunate like us—their forever family did not find them. Some, well—they did survive because of that.

Savvy message



#remembermethursday #remembertherescue

Today is a day to #remembertherescue #remembermethursday. This global event across all channels of social media is founded and hosted by Helen Woodward Animal Center along with brands which support this movement.

I am a former adult shelter cat, considered “less adoptable” due to my extreme shyness and fear. I am going to make a difference, four paws at a time, if that is what it takes.

dont leave me behind

Many of us who work the social media channels to promote those who are languishing in shelters, left without hope—and no matter what social medial channel we use—we always get all those comments about ” so hope [it] finds a  home”; wish I were closer; etc. Those are always kind THOUGHTS.

But, #remembermethursday is a CALL TO ACTION. I, Savannah the Cat, say do not leave those comments unless you also tell me that you have SHARED that rescue animal’s plight, urgency across every social media channel you access. Even if you can email that plea to all your friends. DO SOMETHING!



These animals literally die. They need OUR GLOBAL COMMUNITY to SHARE SHARE SHARE AND PROVE WE CARE!

*steps down, one paw at a time, off soap box*

Many caring humans believe that once a cat is “rescued” by a non-profit rescue, and taken into foster care that he cat is now “safe” and “has a home”. That is so not true. I tried very hard to bring to light the fact that there are hundreds of rescues who have “foster adult cats” languishing in their care and these cats are so adoptable it makes me, Savannah the Cat, almost ashamed to have the loving home I now have.

I was totally considered as “less adoptable”. I was extremely shy and terrified of both other cats and humans. And yet, even though my rescue shelter told Mom L and Dad P that I did not need any toys as I never played—loving care and a patient home proved everyone wrong. If not for the rescue system, I would not be writing this blog.

This year you can all get the entire world talking about pet adoption. AND more importantly , you can help your favorite rescue bring home some Green Papers OR some NOMS!! Yummy! Enter HERE!

Please join me all day tomorrow to spread the love and caring all shelter animals need to NOT BE LEFT BEHIND.

  1. You are the purrfect spokes cat, Savvy, for this cause. We still have Momma Kat on our sidebar with our beautiful senior cat, Swizzle. We cannot believe that she has been waiting for a new home for over two years. Like you were, she is shy. Every life is precious and no cat deserves to be left behind. We did our post for Remember Me Thursday, but we know Mom could do so much more besides that and sponsoring Swizzle. She promises to try to do better with other social media. Thank you, Savvy, for calling us on our lack of action. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  2. Great, great post! We are “remembering” right along with you.

  3. Excellent post, I pray someday they will all have homes.

  4. * Cheers madly * Too right Savvy. We are online and on Twitter pushing #RememberMeThursday right now!

    we are sharing…and hope that one day we won’t have to

  6. I think even worse are the millions who die at the hands of their rescuers aka euthanasia. This is a very important day and even though in past years I remembered on other SM channels, this was the first year I blogger about it.

  7. Very impawtant information. You are a great ambassador Savvy, you too TKS.

  8. We purr for all those animals waiting in shelters for their forever homes…and those that sadly never made it out. 😦

  10. That so many cats never have homes makes me so sad. Bear was homeless when we met. Over the last 10 years, he’s saved my life every single day … I can’t imagine my life without him. And yet, when I found him, most people would’ve considered him a nuisance and unwanted. Every life matters … EVERY SINGLE ONE. For each cat that is killed because there isn’t a home, we lose out on that potential … the potential to make the world and humanity better.

  11. I am so very thankful that I was rescued from a cage too pal and that you were and Sage too. No animal should have to stay in one of those cages – it’s pawful in there!

  12. It’s so important to spread the word for those who have no voice. They rely on us to get the word out.

  13. I shared this post and I hope that all people are with us and that no one will be left behind…

Waving paw...HI!...what'd 'cha think...??
